Publication Account (1951)

98. 87-91 Canongate.

This oblong, five-storeyed tenement may be referred to the beginning of the 18th century. In front it faces the street and behind it looks out on Campbell's Close, the entry to which pierces its E. end. The circular stair tower that gives access to the upper floors rises from within the Close; it has lately been heavily buttressed in brick. The masonry is rubble, harled on the front. The windows are back-set and chamfered. The building is featureless inside, but an ornately moulded mantelpiece of marble still survives on the first floor of the W. house.
